Making the door and windows

Step 13. Making the door and windows.

Make the door, two window shutters, and cut out the windows to the dimensions given in the drawings below.
First cut the plywood door and window shutters to size and then cut out the window holes.
Also cut out the window holes in the two side walls to the dimensions given below.

Next glue and screw the 3/4" x 1 1/2" (45mm x 18mm) wood around the perimeter of the door.
Also glue and screw the pieces required for the two window shutters as per drawings below.
Take note that one shutter has one piece of 3/4" x 1 1/2" (45mm x 18mm) wood running lengthwise flush with the edge, and the other shutter has two pieces, one running lengthwise flush with the edge and the other overlapping the edge by half of its width. See the drawings below and the pictures for a better understanding.
